Weighing in Wednesday - Before and During Photos

Weight Loss Rockin Body
Rockin Body Weight Loss MOBU Herbals Slim Wrap
I once remember leaving on vacation being a size ten and coming back a size 12.  That was the summer before my junior year in high school.  I've never been smaller than a size 13 in my adult life so I really don't know what it is like to be "average" or smaller.  

I do know what it feels like to be healthier and stronger.  I want to get back to where I was in 2001 when I could canoe for hours, walk for a few miles without becoming tired, and being able to carry around a smaller child who needed comforting.   That is all that I want with this exercise routine and my motto is "Healthier, stronger, fitter, and faster."

I finished my 28 days of Rockin' Body.  I feel a little more confident in my body's ability to move and I can do the program a bit better.  I'm starting the program over so that I can get even stronger.  Some routines still kick my butt and I plan on doing the program until it isn't a challenge for me.  I am not sure what I will do next for exercise that I can do from home.  Please leave a comment if you have a home workout that has worked for you!

I decided to test out the MOBU Herbals Slim Wrap Lotion with this 28 day routine and see if I notice more of a difference in inches lost than I did in the previous 28 days.  The Slim Wrap Experiment photos are "before" starting the MOBU Herbals Slim Wrap experiment, but is "after" the first 28 day program.  If anyone is interested in the Slim Wrap review, come back in four weeks.  (I'm a MOBU Herbals Independent Consultant and thought this would be the best way to try it out.)

Road Trip and a Young Life Lost

My sister and her son live about four and a half hours from me.  Even though she is relatively close, it seems quite difficult to go and see her.  My husband and I decided since the weather was great and since my sister and her son didn't have any plans that it would be a perfect time to get away!

When we were two hours away, we received a call that my nephew's uncle had passed away very unexpectedly.  The uncle was 36-years-old.  So, what was supposed to be a fun trip turned into a much needed trip for support for my sister and her son.  We were able to go out to eat with Susan, her ex-husband, and their son and talk about the life of Bert and to reminiscence about life in general.  I was looking forward to seeing my ex-brother-in-law because we don't get to spend much time together since the divorce. 

When I saw Roland, I gave him the biggest hug and let him know how very sorry I was that his younger brother had passed.  I could see the extreme sadness in his eyes, but he did not want to talk about it; it was still too soon.

The mood was as expected, the weather was beautiful, and being there for them was just where we needed to be.  I would not trade the weekend for anything else.

My prayers are with my nephew, his father, and the family as they mourn the life of someone gone too soon.

Weighing in Wednesday - Rockin Body Week 2

Fitstudio Fitness Rockin Body
Summary from Fitstudio.com for week of 1/25/15 to 1/31/15

Sundays are my day off and I love to rest, relax, and finish things that I didn't make time for in the previous week.  Do you have a day off from exercise?

Besides walking around stores, the neighborhood, etc, my main workout is Rockin' Body from Beachbody.  The workout is getting easier, I am not using as many modifiers, and I am sweating more than when I first started.  Each workout I am burning about 600 - 800 calories according to my fitbit. 

The reason I chose this workout is because it is made for beginners.  Shaun T, the instructor, shows all the moves (for the most part unless the camera zooms WAY in then I find myself lost) and he has Tania who does modifications for all exercises for people with injuries or simply cannot keep up.  I cannot always keep up and love that I can follow Tania (who is not always visible on screen)!

My plan is to continue using Rockin Body until it becomes easy.  Today was Week 3 Day 3 and there are nine more workouts.  I will finish the workouts according to the calendar then will start over again.  Maybe after the second time around, I'll be able to move on.

Do any of you have any DVDs that you recommend that aren't too long and I can just use my body weight as resistance?

I am NOT a beachbody coach and will not profit monetarily from this post.
